I’m Carla…Photography for me, has been and always will be, a celebration. Through my lens I celebrate life, joy, moments and my subjects. I try and capture images that make us stop, question and contemplate a photo, even if it is just for a split second.
Photography for me is more than taking pictures, photography is my emotional language, the way I see the world and the way I communicate with my subjects. My emotions and values are inseparable from my photographs and they are as much about me as they are about the people that star in them.
My photography draws from a deep empathy and fascination for the human spirit and it is about honesty, beauty and joy. My pictures are playful and full of movement and often there is a twist of nostalgia, a peeling wall or a glimpse of faded grandeur looming in the background. You could call me romantic but without the schmaltz!
Sometimes I tread quietly waiting for that fleeting moment to come to me and other times I provoke it, I am noisy and loud wanting life to bounce off me straight into my camera.
